Everyone at the Club was devastated to receive the news of the death of loan player Romoney Crichlow-Noble’s mother, Natalie, in Barbados and we offer our sincere condolences and support.
“Since we heard the news last Friday we have done all we can to support Rom and have been proud of the way the lads have pulled around him,” said Chief Executive, Mark Maguire.
“As always in circumstances like this, we will be guided by Rom and his family in anything we do or say publicly but it is important that he knows we consider him part of our family and, as such, we will do all we can to help.
“To Rom’s huge credit he has insisted on continuing to work hard in training and has been exemplary in his commitment since the terrible news. His family should be suitably proud of him.
“We know that there is a fundraising effort to help repatriate Rom’s Mum and would urge anybody who feels it appropriate to get behind those efforts. As a Club, we will certainly make a donation accordingly.
“Several members of our squad have challenges in recent months with bereavement and I’m proud that, as a Club, we pull together in a way that demonstrates what Hartlepool United should be about.
“Our continued thoughts and support are with Rom at this difficult time.”
